T-2 is a telecommunications company that provides various services such as internet, television, and telephone to residential and business customers in Slovenia. The company was founded in 2004 and has since grown to become one of the country’s leading telecommunications services providers.
T-2’s services are delivered through a modern fiber optic network that covers over 90% of Slovenian households. This network provides customers with fast and reliable internet speeds of up to 10 Gbps and a variety of digital television channels and phone services. In addition to its telecommunications services, T-2 also furnishes a range of other offerings, such as cloud computing, IT security solutions and digital marketing services.
The company’s focus on innovation, reliability and customer satisfaction has helped it become a trusted telecom service provider in Slovenia and beyond.
As a company that strives to deliver high-quality services to its customers, T-2 has always been committed to ensuring its network efficiency and effectiveness. The company was investing heavily in network infrastructure and interconnection strategy over the years. However, with a dispersed workforce and complex network architecture, it was difficult for the IT team to gain real-time visibility into network traffic and performance. The company engineers needed a robust, scalable, and flexible network analysis tool that could provide real-time visibility and insights to make informed decisions, as opposed to traditional network traffic analysis practices using the legacy approach/tools.
The decision to deploy NFA followed a thorough assessment of the product features and their alignment with the company’s network performance, analysis and security needs. The actual installation, configuration, and fine-tuning of the system, however, took T-2 engineers only a few hours to complete. “We were pleasantly surprised at how straightforward the NFA deployment process was. The instructions were clear and easy to follow, and the entire setup was completed in no time.” – mentioned Primož Vidnar, the Network Engineer/TK specialist at T-2.
Noction Flow Analyzer has successfully fulfilled all the requirements. It has proven to be an exceptional solution for T-2 from both functional and cost-effective perspectives.
The company engineers stressed that one of the key NFA benefits was its ability to enhance network security/performance by providing real-time monitoring of network traffic to detect any anomalies or threats. The tool offered a flexible and customizable approach to data queries, allowing engineers to filter data based on specific parameters and receive alerts when unusual traffic patterns were detected.
NFA was capable of ingesting and handling large amounts of flows/s from a variety of devices, making it ideal for use in T-2’s high-traffic network. The company noted that NFA offered an intuitive interface for configuring, managing, and analyzing IP flow data, making it easy for the company’s network administrators to access and use the data they needed. The tool was easy to implement and scale, as it supported multiple device types and brands, making it a flexible solution for T-2’s intricate network architecture.
